Merrimack “Currier & Ives” Jumbo Playing Cards, c.1970s
Mint sealed deck of oversized cards, published by Merrimack Playing Card Co. in the 1970s, featuring beautiful Currier & Ives prints on all cards. The box notes that there are 52 different prints, but I am not sure why there are not at least 53. The listing at the World Web Playing Card Museum shows that the Joker has a print, along with the other 52 cards. Even if both Jokers are the same there should be 53.
According to the WWPCM listing (WWPCM #10390), the deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus 1 extra card that contains a brief description of Currier & Ives. The cards are very large (they are called “Jumbo’ on the box), measuring 152mm x 107mm. They come in the original box.
The cards are mint and sealed. The box is in excellent condition, with only the very slightest shelf wear at the edges and corners.
